Before the center of downtown activity moved up to Granville and Georgia, in the early 1900s, Vancouver was centred upon the intersection of Main and Hastings streets.

Vancouver's Japanese community settled around Powell Street, within close proximity to various marine industries.

The end of Vancouver's streetcar service and the end of the North Shore ferries, both of which were headquartered in the area, brought tough times to the eastside of downtown in the second half of the 20th century.

Local festivals include:
· Powell Street Festival - Aug. 4-5, 2007
